Simple Meal Prep Recipe

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you how to make food in bulk and simplify your diet.

If you are not cooking in bulk, you are making your meal prep so much more effort than it needs to be.

When you make food in bulk, you not only spend less time in the kitchen preparing your meals, you also save time and effort on cleaning dishes.

I’ll prove this by showing you time saving examples of how to quickly prep your protein and vegetables in bulk, so you always have extra prepared food for future meals.

I’m going to prepare 1 meal and show you how to turn it into a 4 meals.

Time Saving Meal Prep Tips

One of the fastest ways to cook your proteins in bulk, is the BBQ.

If time is an issue, buying pre-portioned grass fed beef patties is also an excellent time saver.

When it comes to prepping your vegetables fast, the food processor is one of your best friends when cooking in bulk.

This way you can shred up the vegetables fast, so they can be sauted quickly in some avocado oil whenever you want.

Simply store any of the unused raw shredded vegetables in a food container, and store in the fridge.

Then all you have to do is heat it up in a pan with avocado oil and add your favorite seasonings.

I use avocado oil as it is the best oil to use when cooking over high heat.

Here’s an example of a simple Bunless Burger and Sauted Vegetables meal prep recipe.

Instructions
  1. Simply fire up the BBQ and allow it to heat up.
  2. Add the whole pack of beef patties on the grill.
  3. Depending on the thickness of the beef patties, simply set your timer for 3-5 minutes and grill.
  4. Once the timer is up, flip the burgers and set your timer for another 3-5 minutes and cook throughly.
  5. While the burgers are grilling, add 2 cups of brussels sprouts to a food processor, using the "shred" side of the blade. Once they brussels sprouts are thinly shredded, add the 1/2 cup onion, and then 2 cups of broccoli to the food processor.
  6. Once the burgers are cooked throughly, remove them from the grill and add them to a plate.
  7. To sauté the vegetables, add 1 tbsp of avocado oil to a pan heated over medium high heat, then add the vegetable mix to the pan.
  8. As the vegetables are sauting, add you favorite seasonings to the vegetables. I added a dash of pink himalayan salt, a dash of ground black pepper, and 2 tsp of "Everything Bagel Seasoning". This is a blend of onion, garlic, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and other spices. It's a great blend to spice up your vegetables.
  9. Saute for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  10. Add a beef patty to your plate, along with 1 to 1 1/2 cups of the sauted vegetable mix.
  11. If desired, add brown mustard on top of the burger.

Bottom Line On How To Make Food In Bulk

This is how simple it can be to cook your proteins and vegetables in bulk.

Simply add all the leftovers to food containers, and store them in the fridge so you can enjoy this meal again tomorrow.

Remember, your meals are intended to fuel your body, so they do not always have to look super delicious.

This meal provides a good source of healthy fats, protein, and fiberous carbohydrates from the vegetables.

Also for your calorie and macronutrient calculations, this meal is super easy to calculate.

All you have to take into account is the grass fed beef patty, which has the nutrition facts listed on the label.

The brown mustard and vegetables are a considered a zero calorie, free foods, so we don’t need to count that.

But we do count the calories from the tablespoon of avocado oil used to sautee the vegetables.

You also need to calculate the macadamia nuts as they are high in healthy fat.

Basically that is a straight forward and simple meal to calculate the calories and macronutrients.

Next time you follow a recipe, quadruple the recipe, and save yourself time by cooking in bulk.

Then store the leftovers in containers, in the fridge, then you’ll have food prepped and ready whenever you need it.

This is the simplified approach to your nutrition.
